Lately I have seen quite a few young women wearing these either over their jeans or even worse, over their leggings. Gross! What the fuck is this all about? I don’t like this. Is this happening outside of Toronto? It’s terrible and needs to stop. I think these socks are great for keeping your feet warm and for making sweet stuffed monkeys but they do not work as a fashion item or statement. The hipsters have created ironic functionality and I don’t like it one bit. Also, most of the women I have seen wearing these aren’t wearing that much else so I doubt they are too worried about staying warm. So let’s just leave them to the hikers and the stuffed animals.
Also spotted in TO this week, bare midriff…twice! It is not bare midriff weather.
